ABOUT THIS WEBSITE
Roadside green verges in Bremen sometimes get unsightly, because the city government doesn't have money to get them tended to the extent necessary.
Citizens sometimes undertake the maintenance of grass verges and change those narrow areas into little artworks which brighten up daily life.
This refreshment stand with the nice name 'The Last Glass'is far too small for a human being to fit in and to drink a glass of 'Corona pilsner' beer which is advertised on the doorposts.
The kiosk isn't located on a Caribbean beach or on South Sea Islands, it is
...on a small grass verge with a tree and a traffic sign in the so-called Eastern Suburb of Bremen.
A resident created this little artwork out of stones, small shrubs, little trees and a miniature shack.
One can come across an other artwork on an other green verge in the Eastern Suburb of Bremen.
The pedestal of this sculpture consists of masonry and metal plates.
The body of the fish is decorated with fantasy animals and hydrophytes.
The sign under the fish says 'Just look, don't touch'.
There is also a little artwork of amateur horticulture on this narrow green verge in the Eastern Suburb of Bremen.
One can also see little tessellation artwork at the bottom of the picture.
Even the b-w photograph shows how artfully many different plants were arranged on this green verge.
The bed was also accurately inlayed with an other mosaic.
